tur on the ground for us in boston. >>> president obama talked about immigration reform during his weekly address from the road. >> this bill is a compromise, which means nobody got everything they wanted, including me but largely consistent with the principles i have laid out from the beginning. these are all common sense steps that the majority of americans support. so there's no reason immigration reform can't become reality this year. >>> back in the united states, the nra is holding its annual convention this weekend in houston. executive director chris cox had some harsh words for gun advocates, like president obama, and new york city mayor michael bloomberg, who cox says exploits victims of tragedy like those in newtown and aurora. >> while we pray for god to comfort those suffering unimaginable pain, they rush to microphones and cameras, gather in war rooms on capitol hill, and scheme about how to use that suffering to push their political agenda. >>> and ever since democratic seine is tore tom harkin announced that he would not seek re-election in iowa next year, many turn
on many fronts today. president obama again talking trade and immigration reform down in mexico before leaving the country he named kenny pritzker of the marriott hotel family as our new commerce secretary. in boston, the marathon bombing suspect told investigators he and his brother originally planned to plant suicide bombs on the fourth of july but get the bombs done early sol they would focus on the boston marathon instead that. and a whole lot more instead coming up on current tv. going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. >> if you believe in state's rights but still support the drug war you must be high. >> "viewpoint" digs deep into the issues of the d
the biggest names in politics and hollywood. the featured speakers, president obama and talk show host conan o'brien. we'll have it live for you starting with the red carpet arrivals. we'll also show you some of the ctivities going around the district today. we're going to look at some of the speechers from past correspondence dinners. we'll start with 1993, that was the first year that c-span broadcasted the event, the speaker was elayne booler. >> thank you, thank you, mr. mrs. clinton. thank you for coming. i'm so grateful to have opportunity to entertain you since you have entertained me on c-span so many times. i love c-span. it is like lawmakers in their natural habitat. it is like wild kingdom but with congressman. now a debate on wheat.

talked about the decision, should be do health care or not? and obama'sed a sliders saying do not do health care. what the public wants is you to focus on the economy. unemployment is 10%. that's where you need put your efforts. don't want you being diverted. and what essentially persuaded obama for him to decide i'm doing health care anywhere was his legacy, providing for greatness, he needed health care, a goal that eluded presidents for a century. so, two members of his coalition presidency spent their terms locking horns they wouldn't be able to have the kind of achievements, establish the kind of record that would have important legacy for the ages. so, that's why i think it would work out. it's not only my fairly educate guess but we have other support. switzerland i like to use as an example. does it work anywhere else? in switzerland they're executive branch they call a federal council, hat seven department heads, and they possess equal decisionmaking authority. there's no first among equals. they really are truly equals. they rotate through the presidency for one year term a
ideas. not talking about the tea party. talking about liberals. so the of the week obama's at the debt is not a problem. for 10 years we don't have to worry about debt. not just that, deficit spending close become. i read almost everything again online and there are furious people in mainstream publications who sat there and argued during the debt ceiling debate that we should have a trillion dollar platinum coin, deposited in the treasury and wash her hands of this. these are serious people and they called the tea party crazy. safi like the whole world is spinning out of control and i'm the only normal person in it, with you guys, and everyone has just gone crazy. think about obama and budgets and everything we talk about. his budget is a huge massive zero-sum fallacy masquerading as policy. it's not a budget like you think of a budget. it's not about economic growth. it's about fairness. he doesn't care about growth. he looks at the world as a piper come sure most of you read milton friedman and you have ridiculous that is. which brings the to the scares prospect of all. what does th

of obama care. i found that fascinating. >> bill: not true. >> while we're talking about books. i have a book coming out soon and i hope you will plug it it's called "killing garfield." it's a real page-turner. >> bill: already written by what's her name the good historian out of kansas, i believe. but, look, what i picked up here at the correspondent's dinner were two things. lack of g.o.p. presence. very few republicans there the press is not skeptical of president obama. you have written a book about him. slobbering obama care. along liberal lines. president obama is a liberal. most of the preg press is liberals. they like him. there is no skepticism anymore, bernie, about the failure of certain policies. it's like okay, so what? so what? so what the economy remains -- so what afghanistan is going down the drain and we have that in a couple of minutes? so what? that's what -- >> right. a couple of points on that. you mentioned in the lead-in to this segment that they like him. you are absolutely right. and never underestimate the power of likability in any facet of life. they have a
office at the presidential level and other office undergone excruciating scrutiny. look at what obama went through. they talked about his momma, his birthplace, his pastor and religion. wreligion. nobody else asked for their transcript -- >> laura: we haven't seen. we haven't seen his crypt. >> nobody else for anybody else's? >> have they been withheld -- >> no one asked for them. >> laura: you think -- >> why would you ask for it? other than him being african-american and the implication for affirm tv action -- >> laura: wait. i don't want to get hung up on that. but you are saying that the reason people want to know his grades in college and law school is because he is black? >> i'm saying -- >> laura: really? >> no white candidate has been asked that? >> laura: because i believe people release their transcripts and for the most part you know what the gpa is. i don't think it's the reason they're asking for that. i don't know what the big deal is release the transcript. let's move on to what justice thomas said. you speak all the time and talk to a lot of people. do you disagree tha
re-talking about? are we talking about the barack obama that his -- the administration raised the fee for citizenship application to get back down again? don't get me started. i can go low sides on this because these politicians, that's my point, have moved them play this game like checkers or chess when it suits their interest in suits their politics. it's not just john mccain. >> i will tell what barack obama we are talking about. we are talking about the president obama that just won a re-election with 71% of the latino vote and understands there is a dead and we will not let him off the puck. i think it's a president obama who no longer has realm and manual as a chief of staff telling him it's too politically costly for you to do this in your first term. i think the president barack obama who wants a legacy and understand that this can be a major point for his legacy. to the point where he is stepping back. the question you asked antonio, if president obama had done what he said he was going to do and luis knows this and crossed his own legislation on congress to say here is my bi
. the really important thing to remember here we've been talking about justice and i think if the obama administration is going to allow itself to be led by the polls that's putting politics over justice but putting politics over sound policy. every single relevant national security stakeholder in the united states government agrees that closing guantanamo is in the national security interest of the united states and we're still not doing it. that's a clear example. the clearest example i've ever seen of putting politics over sound policy. >> john, your contention that guantanamo was an effort to evade the constitution. we're not talking about dealing with u.s. citizens, though, which is not to say we should deal with citizens of other nations that violate our ethics, but this is not -- these are people who are not entitled to the protection of the constitution, presumably. >> right. that's true. i think maybe -- >> that's very much an open question. that's an issue my students and i litigate day in and day out in federal court. >> doesn't mean they should be treated unethically by any
.88. > >>> president obama is going south of the border to talk about just that -- the border. it's may 2nd, and this is "now." >>> from the red line to the borderline, president obama's week has been chock full of foreign policy. in the last hour, the president boarded air force one and is now en route to mexico city. where he will meet with newly minted mexican president, enrique peniento. >> my top priority as president is to grow the economy, first i'm going to visit mexico, one of our largest economic partners. then i'll be visiting costa rica. and in both instances i'm going to be working to deepen our economic and trade relationships across latin america. relationships that create jobs and growth here at home. and offer our businesses growing markets where they can sell more american-made goods and services abro abroad. >> although this will be president obama's fourth trip to mexico since 2009, the mexican president has only been in office for five months and he's making it clear that he would like to press reset on the u.s./mexico relationship. shifting photo cuss away from the int
think the reason there are so many folks talking about the possibility of government tyranny is threefold really. the obama administration's increasing reliance on big government. i think it's folks like alex jones who did this routine where every time they shut down a city like boston it's the end of the world and military law. and honestly, i think folks like you, piers because, you know, you go out of your way to really give the impression that you're interested in taking away people's fundamental right to bear arms and i think that scares a lot of folks. >> i'm not against the right to bear arms, i'm seriously against the right of having military style assault weapons to blow people away in a school. >> you said you're against assault weapons, but handguns kill 6,000 a year. >> they're both a big problem. mass shootings. >> you're from the uk, why don't we go with a full gun ban. >> we discussed it, the uk has 40, 50 gun murders a year, the u.s. has 12,000. let's move on. >> i'm glad you finally have your agenda out there. >> let's turn to jason collins. this is the sport
others were talking about immigration. you and dennis miller were discussing my remarks a day or two later and mr. miller was complaining, as i recall it, that president obama had about called it terrorism on the first day. he waited until the second day. that was an appropriate criticism given his viewpoint of the president. the notion you suspend discussion of important issues in face of tragedy, i do not accept. but i did begin the interview with my feeling of sadness and condolences for people. >> bill: here is why it might be inappropriate. because when you say that look, no tax cut would help this situation, you basically polarizing americans who want lower taxes, smaller government. but in a time like this, in boston, and you're from boston, i wanted to see -- i called for on the air all americans to come together. all right? not only to support the grieving families -- grieving families but to show the world we're a united front. and you are not going to come in here to our house and intimidate us. >> bill: i agree. >> bill: by your rhetoric, you're dividing people 24 hours a
to take the reins there is janet yellin, the vice chair. she is who gets most often talked about as a leading candidate. some others are less widely talked about, roger ferguson, larry summers has the resume for it but is a polarizing figure. i think president obama will have plenty of options as he starts to weigh this decision in the months ahead. >> it does sound like janet yellin is the front-runner from the people we've been hearing from. tell me, do you think when it does come time for the federal reserve to pull the stimulus out of the economy, and let's say she is the fed chief, what kind of job do you think she'll do? because it's a very tricky -- it's a very tricky exit strategy to have to executes here. >> yeah, you know, the politics, the technical stuff is one side. you raise interest rates? can you sell off this bond portfolio they've accumulated? $3 trillion a huge task. but have i more confidence in their ability to handle the technical aspects than i do making the right decision. when do you begin this exit? when does the time that inflation is a risk, financial
move was president obama endorsing president bush's leadership on immigration and saying that this was his legacy, and let's vindicate his vision. grassley, ahuck ranking member of the senate judiciary said, after the boston bombings, all this talk about immigration reform, it is time to look at immigration laws and policies already in place to make sure we are addressing national security issues. >> the bombings have implications on terror policy, implications on the miranda rule and all of that. it does not have any implications in reality of immigration. i know is being used left and right but you will have immigrants, going back to the early 19th century, 20th- unexpected is not and it is the price of immigration, of which the good that we get from immigrants far weighs theseut feelings of this affection or violence. >> amazingly, we sit here week after week talking about how washington is dysfunctional. this is the first time i thought they would do something. the stars are in alignment. really, the republicans cannot afford to bid anti-immigration. >> i am not sure
't pause a show in one room then start playing it in another. and...i'm talking to myself... [ male announcer ] call to get u-verse tv for just $19 a month for 2 years with qualifying bundles. rethink possible. . >>> the obama administration getting involved in the so called morning after pill. the white house is appealing a judge's order to lift all of the age limits on who can buy without a prescription. they lowered the age to 15 years old and that's two years younger than the earlier limit. >>> a question about security is being raised because it is the second anniversary of osama bin laden. may 2nd 2011 back in washington president barack obama announced osama bin laden had been killed in the raid. the white house does not want to raise awareness to the anniversary due tensions in the middle east. >>> kyla campbell reports from the washington d.c. newsroom, immigration is at the top of the concerns. >> reporter: president barack obama needs mexico to have agreeing economy. president barack obama and the mexican president will tout mexico's success and mexico is one of the top t
on weapons of mass destruction. while president obama seems to have learned that lesson, many in the press and congress are pushing hard and fast for military intervention in syria. we will talk about what that would actually mean in a bit. first i want to share the three awesomist things on the internet today. beginning with a cool feature from the new york times. yes, scott fitzgerald novel, coming up with a film and the book is currently topping the amazon best seller list. the marketing of the book has the gatsby lovers up in arms. it is probably a good thing he is not around to see the film. barnes & noble will sell both editions and wal-mart will only sell the book with leo on the cover. perhaps that book seller just needs a reminder of last year's best seller. second awesomist thing -- by the way, that cover is awesome. second thing, a twitter trend that reached a whole new level. as salon puts it, anything and everything that is even the slightest potential to become a mean will get its own twitter account. case in point, clint eastwood's rnc speech to an empty chair. when senator

there was a four-term president, franklin dell del delano rows volt and you say this president has talked about himself like that. >> presidents cannot keep the world as arm's length. barack obama is trying to prevent himself from getting entangled in anything whether it's syria, the middle east or north korea. as fdr discovered, bill clinton, george w. bush. enrich adder nixon, the president of the united states has got to be engaged in the affairs of the world or the world begins to become destabilized. jon: that's why in syria red lines become a little fuzzy? >> red lines become a little fuzzy. i don't think the argument here is that the united states has to, you know, get involved in syria with troops on the ground, but i think the united states has to be more heavily involved in what is going on in syria and in the mideast right now than we have been so far because the region is beginning to spin out of control. jon: daniel henninger,ed toker kwral page editor at the "wall street journal." thank you. jenna: it was known as a might nare cruise. passengers on the carnival triumph strand -d f
